1/3. Autoimmune thrombocytopenic purpura after mumps infection.

    Autoimmune thrombocytopenic purpura is estimated to be one of the most common acquired bleeding disorders of children. The pathogenesis involves the generation of autoantibodies against the normally expressed glycoproteins on the platelet membranes. These antibody-coated platelets in turn are destroyed by the spleen and other reticuloendothelial organs. Although the disease can occur without an identifiable etiology, many underlying pathologies, including infections, can be found. We report the mumps virus as a rare etiology of secondary autoimmune thrombocytopenic purpura.

2/3. Immune thrombocytopenic purpura in a child with acute lymphoblastic leukemia and mumps.

    Immune thrombocytopenic purpura in childhood is characterized by a typical history of acute development of purpura and bruising in an otherwise healthy child. In children it usually follows a viral infection (eg, mumps, rubella) or immunization. We report for the first time a child with acute lymphoblastic leukemia who developed immune thrombocytopenic purpura due to mumps during the maintenance phase of acute lymphoblastic leukemia treatment.

3/3. Thrombocytopenic purpura occurring during the early phase of a mumps infection.

    Thrombocytopenic purpura with reduced megakaryocyte count in bone marrow was found in a very early phase of a mumps infection in a one year 9 months old boy. No antithrombocyte antibodies were detected. Three weeks later, the mumps antibody titer in the serum was significantly elevated, and thrombocyte and megakaryocyte counts returned to normal.
